B.S. in Biomedical Engineering

Minor in Material Science Engineering

o3.489 GPA, 6-time Dean’s Honors List


R&D Engineer for Medtronic Neurovascular (Oct 2017-Nov2018)

oWorked as a member of the Released Product Engineering team which deals with designing and developing different test methods for all post-market products (coils, stents, catheters, etc.)

oUtilized engineering knowledge in conducting complaint evaluations while partaking in a cross-functional CAPA team to determine the root cause of a catheter failure and implemented a new hub design to further prevent failures.

oPrepared technical product documentations including multiple electronic change orders (ECO) along with a real-time aging report to validate the shelf-life of one of our revascularization devices

oOversaw production of Engineering Work Orders within manufacturing line and created injection molding design experiments within prototype cleanroom

Protein Chemistry R&D Intern for Epinex Diagnostics Inc. (Nov 2015- Feb 2016)

oLead a team in researching the interaction between glucose and different proteins within the blood along with their individual glycation rates.

oPrepared quantitative analyses along with technical results of our findings.

Intern for the Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology UCI (June 2014-Sep 2014)

oDesigned different defective heart models in 3-D and performed FEA on how blood flow is affected based on each type of heart defect

oHelped researchers quantify the necessity of heart valve stents and which type of stent is needed for each type of heart defect


MATLAB programming

oLearned the basic concepts of MATLAB and applied them to different engineering type modules such as signal analysis and quantitative physiology

oUtilized MATLAB toolboxes to solve partial differential equations related to circuits, mechanics, and transport.

Minitab Software

oUtilized Minitab to familiarize self with statistical analyses such as p-test, t-test and ANOVA testing

oDetermine statistical significance of failures during product testing within Medtronic Neurovascular

oCreated a Design of Experiment (DOE) to determine the optimal parameters of an injection molding machine for the creation of catheter hubs

Solidworks Modeling

oAbility to read a mechanical engineering part or assembly drawing.

oTranslate proposed design concepts into 3D CAD models and generate engineering drawings for manufacture

Technical Writing

oAbility to plan, organize, prepare, and deliver effective technical reports in written, oral, and other formats appropriate to the discipline and goals of the program.

oWritten Product Failure Responses, Design Verification Testing protocols, Test Methods, Test Method Validations, and other various reports for Medtronic Neurovascular

Microsoft Office

oProficient in all Office applications (Word, Excel, Visio, etc.)
